Manchester City may be runaway leaders in the Premier League but not one of their players has made it into a Team of the Season so far, based on match ratings from fans.

Pep Guardiola’s side are 10 points clear of Chelsea at the top of the table after a remarkable run of 11 straight victories in the Premier League.

Despite their impressive form, none of City’s players have been included in a Team of the Season released by the BBC on Monday.

Supporters have been asked to rate players out of 10 after every league match this season, with the results now collated into a viable starting XI.

Players must have featured in at least nine league matches to qualify for the team, and the mid-season results have thrown up a few surprises.

City goalkeeper Ederson has 11 clean sheets this season, the most of any goalkeeper in the league, but misses out on a place in the side to Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale.

Two Brighton players feature in the back four, Tariq Lamptey and Shane Duffy, while Liverpool duo Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson also make the team.

In midfield, West Ham’s Declan Rice and Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante are joined by Conor Gallagher, who has impressed on loan at Crystal Palace from Stamford Bridge.

Mohamed Salah unsurprisingly makes the cut after scoring 16 goals in 20 Premier League games for Liverpool this season.

He’s joined up front by West Ham’s Michail Antonio and Chelsea forward Kai Havertz.

No Manchester United or Tottenham players have made the starting XI, while there’s no place in the side for standout City players Ruben Dias, Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva.
